Applies to

Bridge by Smartsheet

For some workflows you’ll create in Bridge, you’ll need to get IDs for elements in Smartsheet (e.g., sheets, rows, columns).

Read on to learn how to find IDs to use in your workflows.

To find the sheet ID

  1. Open the sheet you need for your Bridge workflow.
  2. In your sheet, select File.
  3. Choose Properties
  4. In the dialog that appears, copy the Sheet ID.

To find the Row ID in a sheet

  1. Open the sheet containing the row you need for your Bridge workflow. 
  2. In the left side of the row, select Row Menu Row Menu icon.
  3. Choose Properties.
  4. Copy the Row ID.

To find a Column ID from a sheet

Column IDs aren’t visible in the Smartsheet columns settings. You’ll need to build a simple Bridge workflow to gather the column IDs for a sheet. Follow these steps to find the column ID:

  1. Create a new workflow in Bridge. 
  2. Add the List Columns module to the workflow.
  3. In the Sheet ID field of the List Columns module, paste the sheet ID.
  4. Save the workflow. 
  5. Open the Run Log.
  6. To run the workflow, select the Play button. 
  7. Refresh the Run Log
  8. To see an array of the columns for that sheet, expand the Run Log entry.
    The list will be in the same order as the sheet, with the first column on the left being column 0 in the Run Log array.
